Felony Conviction/Prosecution Statistics for Rape in the Past decade?

Does anyone know the rise and fall of conviction statistics for rapists in the US?


I think there may have been some misunderstanding about what I asked. I'm not looking only for rape statistics, I'm looking for conviction rates based on those statistics. Within the past 10 years, what percentage of these PROVEN rape charges are ending with the offender behind bars with a felony charge? Many of the places I have looked show only the stats for rape/sexual assault alone, and do not list the conviction rates for the offenders responsible. Per state, or year.

    The figures provided by Elana shows the problem. One shows the probability of violent physical rapes. Which in the worst possible state still amount to one rape for every thousand woman years.

    It doesn't show changes over time.

    The other points out that by redefining rape to include a lot of other sexual misconduct the figures themselves are largely meaningless. The FBI has no idea of how to interpret the figures for something that is so different from what it had traditionally been.

    There is zero evidence to support the contention made by debra that the number of rapes are high or increasing. That is simply something that exists in her head.

    The rate is low and we do not know if the actual number of rapes is going up or going down.

    Note that Debra doesn't actually provide statistics, only anecdotal data.

    If you want the real numbers, then they are astronomical, the feds don't want anyone to know the truth about sexual assaults against women. The economy would crash, due to fear of leaving the house.


    Mateen Cleaves is another example of male privilege.
